We want to show our very own Robin Drace a very huge thank you for her role in community services . Robin has been with this Local for 30 years this coming March. She has continued to be an exceptional leader in her efforts to support our troops . She has been giving care packages to our military men and woman across seas to the tune of 3000 packages . Last night Steve Walter , retired Army Captain and one of robins first care package recipients was at our local union meeting to present her with the Jefferson Award she won through the International Steelworkers for her community service efforts. So from all of here at the local we want to say to Robin, you are an inspiration to all and from the bottom of our hearts we THANK YOU.

The District is in the process of obtaining buses in the Pittsburgh, Harrisburg and Philadelphia area to participate in the Poor People’s March. The march was organized in 1968 by Dr. Martin Luther King and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference in an effort to gain economic justice for poor people in the United States. The march was carried out by Ralph Abernathy in the wake of Dr. King’s assignation. Fifty years later we will again march on Washington D.C., Saturday, June 23, 2018.
